The Annual Door Control Services and Door Controls USA Golf Tournament began with a group of Door Control Services employees who got together on sunny days and relaxed with a round of golf. This soon became a routine and the group wanted to make the golf outing a tradition benefiting a charity. Door Control Services, Inc. and Door Controls USA, Inc. have been longtime friends of the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. DCS and DC USA not only service and maintain TSRHC's doors and provide parts, but also have employees who have benefited from the hospital's services in many fashions. The first years of the golf tournament were comprised of 8 employee teams raising $1,100 to $1,819. As the golf tournament gained momentum and both companies' desires to give and raise more funds for TSRHC, the golf invitation was extended not only to employees but customers and vendors to include the entire DCS and DC USA families.
Fifteen years later, the once small golf tournament has grown by leaps and bounds into an anticipated event raising thousands of dollars and bringing awareness to the amazing services TSRHC provides to Texas children at NO COST. Last year's tournament was Door Control Services' and Door Controls USA's most successful tournament to date with 144 players (35 teams) raising an astonishing $35,326.12. http://www.tsrhc.org/
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children is a world leader in the treatment of pediatric orthopedic conditions. They strive to improve the care of children worldwide through innovative research, teaching programs, and training physicians from around the world.
TSRHC treats Texas children with orthopedic conditions, such as scoliosis, clubfoot, hand disorders, hip disorders, and limb length differences, as well as certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia.
The hospital was established in 1921 when a group of Texas Masons approached Dallas' first orthopedic surgeon Dr. W. B. Carrell about caring for children with polio regardless of the family's ability to pay. With the introduction of the Salk and Sabin vaccines in the mid-1950s, which virtually eradicated polio in the Western Hemisphere, TSRHC broadened its focus to other orthopedic conditions.
As a leading pediatric orthopedic center, the hospital has treated more than 245,000 children since its inception, with more than 22,000 active patients, 35,327 outpatient visits and 2,102 surgeries performed in the fiscal year 2015. The hospital takes a multi-disciplinary approach to care, tailoring treatment to the individual needs of each child and family.
